I'd put a 2x8 or 2x10 in every bay, and secure the subfloor to them. Make sure they're well supported on the ends so that they have full contact with the subfloor.

Gordon, the Deflecto doesn't allow for an input of 29" spacing, but even at 24" spacing with unknown wood in good condition, you would just barely be above the maximum deflection rating, so with 20%...

Is that beam supported from below, at the ends, in the middle, or both? Do you see any sagging of the beam? How is the beam constructed?

Is the waterproofing layer on the curb, as well as the tile on top of the curb, sloped to shed water into the shower?

Have you looked at the underside of the floor as well? It may say "Exposure 1".

But the primer is a must, in addition to the exterior glue plywood.

Gordon, 29" is an unusual spacing for joists. If that's the spacing for your deck, I think you'll likely be shy of the required deflection. Are you sure that's the spacing throughout the deck?

So what is the height of the joists? And are they actually 3" thick? Are they two 2x joists stuck together?

You may be able to cut away enough to keep the band around the drain, but the Kerdi you bonded it to will likely come with.

It doesn't hurt to try, just cut out from the drain a few inches and...

Are you setting the end of the level on the drain flange?

Do you have a longer level that you could set parallel to and across the drain and see if it's level?

I agree with Jim. If the pan...

So is there tile on walls adjacent to the one being torn out? I don't see a wide shot of the shower to be able to tell.

My concern is how the waterproofing on the back wall, when reinstalled,...

The little gap at the bottom of the niche will allow water into that wall in no time. Same for the curb.

Is the ceiling getting tile?

If you do, just make it a sliver, just enough so the tile isn't in direct contact with the counter.

You could easily set the tile on the low end 1/8" off the counter, then you would only cut 1/2" off the high end. Not perfect, but better. And a well-tooled bead of caulk will hide that.

You'd have to remove the subfloor and cut the joists down, then add blocking all around to support the new subfloor. You may also...

I'd put that plug back in and fill just the square are around the drain first. It won't take much water, but if it goes down, then it's your plug.
